Hendrick Motorsports made their official announcement Wednesday morning. Jeff Gordon will replace Dale Earnhardt Jr. for at least the next two races beginning with the Crown Royal 400 at the Brickyard. Earnhardt has not been cleared by physicians to compete.
Gordon is going to be one of the best fantasy values in the coming weeks. While most salary cap games know to add him at a high value, he is still likely to exceed expectations on the 2.5-mile flat tracks of Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Pocono Raceway coming up on the schedule. Gordon has nothing to prove, but would like to make a statement nonetheless. He has been consistently stronger than Earnhardt throughout his career and at Indy in particular. Gordon’s most recent win at the Brickyard came two season ago, but last year an accident left him with a sour taste. Jul 20 - 10:50 AM

Jeff Gordon (#24 AXALTA Chevrolet SS) finished sixth in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver started fifth in the lineup and completed all laps of the 267-lap event (led nine laps). Gordon, who made his final full-time career start in this race, competed in all of the season's 36 races. He scored one 2015 victory (Martinsville Speedway on November 1st), four poles, five top-fives, 21 top-10s and closed out the season third in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings, five points behind 2015 Champion Kyle Busch.

Jeff Gordon did not get the victory and championship that would have further etched his name in NASCAR’s record book, but he ended his career on a high note. He finished sixth in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to end the 2015 season—and his career—with a seven-race streak of top-10s. He finished third in the season-long championship.

Gordon now turns his attention to the broadcast booth, but fantasy owners can expect some of the momentum earned by this team to transfer to Chase Elliott in 2016.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead among Chase contenders with a speed of 173.321 mph. He was ninth fastest overall, followed by Martin Truex Jr. in 10th with a lap of 173.232 mph, 17th-fastest Kyle Busch at 171.418 mph, and 26th-fastest Kevin Harvick with a 169.972 mph lap.

While Harvick was slowest, he was running on older tires most of the race. He should easily run among the top 10 most of the afternoon and challenge for the victory. This year’s battle between the top four is more equal that it would appear based on the speed chart.

Jeff Gordon enters the weekend with six consecutive top-10s in the past six races, which gives him the best active streak among all competitors.

He should easily be able to end his career with one more top-10 and extend that streak, but as one of the Chase contenders only one position matters. Gordon will need to use strategy in order to contend for the victory.

Jeff Gordon did not make any mock qualification runs in Friday’s practice, which left him a little confused on which line to run on his first time trial lap. He landed briefly outside of the top 24 in the first qualification session, but rebounded to eventually qualify fifth for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Without the extra run on his tires, Gordon believed he might have a shot at winning the pole like he did in 2014. Since he has worked on race trim more than some of the other competitors, however, he should have a good shot at finishing better than last year’s 10th.

Jeff Gordon posted the slowest time among the four Chase contenders in the first practice session for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. His fastest lap of 170.127 mph was good enough for only 30th on the speed chart.

Gordon concentrated on race trim for that entire session which will only be a problem if qualification is rained out. Last week he had a similarly slow time in practice, but adapted a qualification setup from his teammates and advanced to the final round of time trials.

Sunday’s race in Miami is scheduled to be Jeff Gordon’s final start as a full-time Sprint Cup driver.

His career began on Nov. 15, 1992, at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Richard Petty’s final start. This will mark Gordon’s 797th consecutive start – extending his NASCAR record. On Nov. 18, 2012, Gordon led the final 13 laps on the way to his only Sprint Cup victory at the South Florida track. His seven top-five finishes and 16 starts are the most at the 1.5-mile track while the driver of the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS is tied with Harvick for most top-10s. In 2016, Gordon will join Mike Joy and Darrell Waltrip as an analyst for the FOX Sports broadcasts of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.-Hendrick Motorsports

Jeff Gordon entered the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 with the longest active top-10 streak and he added to that by one race at Phoenix International Raceway. He now has six consecutive results in that range and has not finished outside the top 15 during the Chase. Gordon finished sixth Sunday night.

His average finish in that span of races is sixth, however, and that will not allow him to win his fifth Championship in his final year. Gordon and team have been solid in the past two weeks and they may have been experimenting with different setups to help find magic for the Ford 400, however.

Jeff Gordon was the slowest of the Chase contenders in Friday’s practice, but he posted the fastest time in the first round of qualification for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 with a speed of 141.738 mph.

We suspected that Gordon might have been working on race trim and might take some setup notes from his teammate Jimmie Johnson. That appears to be true and Gordon is a good gamble for Sunday.

Jeff Gordon was the slowest of the eight current Chase contenders in Friday’s practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. His top speed of 139.616 mph was 0.402 seconds slower than his teammate Jimmie Johnson.

Of course it is difficult to know what Gordon was working on since he already has an automatic berth to the Championship finale with his Martinsville Speedway win. Fantasy players should not be overly surprised if he adopts Johnson’s setup and qualifies among the top 12.

Jeff Gordon finished ninth in the AAA Texas 500, which was his fifth consecutive top-10 finish during the Chase.

Gordon is the only driver who will go to Phoenix International Raceway with the knowledge that he will be among the final four. The No. 24 may have used the AAA 500 as an extended test for Homestead-Miami Speedway since Goodyear will bring the same tire to that track.

Jeff Gordon’s practice and qualification times indicate that he is on target to earn a top-20 at Texas Motor Speedway, but could struggle to finish in the top 10. His Friday practice speed was 19th-best and he qualified 18th.

Gordon has the luxury of his Martinsville Speedway win that locks him into the Chase finale, so he could have spent more time in race trim on Friday than any of the other drivers. He may also gamble in the race seeking his 94th career win. Gordon could pay huge dividends for players or he could finish in the high-teens, so it’s time to flip the coin.

Jeff Gordon has been running at the end of all 46 Martinsville Speedway races he ever started, but his Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 victory this week may be his most important yet. With it, he scored a victory in his final season and it insures he will be part of the Championship battle at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

This is Gordon’s ninth victory at Martinsville and it is difficult to overstate its significance. Gordon was his fourth straight top-10 and completes a sweep of the top 15 during the Chase.

Jeff Gordon posted the second-fastest single lap in practice for the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway. His top speed of 98.364 mph 9/100ths of a second slower than leader Joey Logano.

Gordon has not yet won in 2015 and this is his best opportunity in the final four races to do so. Last year he lost this event because of a late-race pass by teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. and that kept him from advancing to the final four at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Gordon will be much more aggressive this time around and that could make the difference.
